WHAT WAS THE GIFT THAT YOU APPRECIATED THE MOST? July 19, 2005 5:11 PM

You know, if you think about it, this may be a difficult question to answer!  I need to think about it, while I look forward to your inputs!

The gift that I appreciated the most was whenever July 20, 2005 4:44 AM

The gift that I appreciated the most was whenever my niece was alone with us and we could get to know and see how far she had grown as a young girl. I appreciated the time with her period. Every day in my prayer I thank God for the time we had her on planet earth. ---ginger  [ send green star]

I have always insisted that my kids make me home made mothers day cards.  One year when Rudy had just learned to write in cursive, he found a picture of me holding him in the hospital on the day he was born.  He made one of those pop out cards with that picture in the middle, saying "here you are mom with the best Mother's day present you ever got - me!"  Then a ps on the bottom, "how do you like my cursive"  The card still sits on my dresser.  [ send green star]

My dear Karen, Rudy made a wonderful, unique, present for you!  What great imagination and sense of humor!  I can see why you still cherish it so much!

Tony had a generous nature and gave me lots of gifts, however, what I appreciated the most were the "little things" he'd bring me EVERY day!  He had his favorite routine...go and get two financial papers early in the morning, right after breakfast...  Then he'd stop for a cappuccino and give the day a good start!  But he would NEVER, ever forget to ask me whether I needed anything...  Occasionally, I'd need some fresh bread (right out of the bakery!  YUM!)...  or new batteries for the radio, etc.  In any case, he would NEVER, EVER return empty handed:  he'd always have a little token of affection...  sometimes it would be a gardening magazine...  or a pastry...  or some chocolate...  Those are among the things that I miss the most and make me SO sad every morning...

  Ahhh, Giuliana, those little things are missed so much aren't they, and the funny thing is that sometimes we had not realized how much those little things meant to us in the first place.  Your Tony sounds like a wonderful, 1 in a million kind of guy and I know at some level you are very grateful for the time you had with him, if that is the right word, I am not sure if it is LOL.  I hope you know what I mean.  I do know that it is the little things we remember daily that sometimes are the only reason we make it through the day, the only things that can bring a smile to our face and a warmth to our heart.

Always somthing August 22, 2005 12:51 AM

I have a space in my drawer I keep everything that reminds me of them. Well except my mum's cds which I have to put on the shelf. I still listen to them all and it makes me think how much of me is from her. Just about everything I like in music now is very similar to what she had. That, and little things she gave to me. Like this little brooch which is a cartoon carrot with moving eyes. I was so small when I got that, I was facinated with it in the shop and my mother gave me the money to pay for it myself, which was big because i was about 6. I used to wear it around to school, I'm sure the other kids thought it was dumb. But to me anything that brings in my mind a happy picture of our time together I cherish like it was a priceless jewel.

Most of all the biggest gift they gave for me was a love of the outdoors and of nature. They will always be my inspiration in what ever I do. They opened my eyes to realise that the little problems we face are nothing compared with the big issues in life. I find it hard now to get hung up on the fact that something doesn't go my way or someone isn't nice to me. There are big things we can do that are much more important, whether it be looking after your family, helping others in need, protecting the planet or fulfilling a dream you have in your heart.

Hi Tianna, I love this gift that they have given you and the wisdom that you have to recognize it as such.  [ send green star]
